Question about 1996 Buick Century
I have a broken hood latch cable. Is there a way to manually get the latch to release?
All you have to do is grab flash light look through the grill should see were the cable goes through hood latch should be able to reach it with screw driver to push over and unlatch or you will have to go from under front bumper to unlatch.

Tips for a great answer:
It may be that your hood release cable that runs from the hood release is broken. You'r going to have to try and manually release the hood latch by tripping the release through the grill with something like a long screwdriver. You should be able to identify the latch trigger by following the cable to end.
You might also try having push down on the hood while another person tries to trip the latch if the cable isn't broken, but just stuck.
